Love the color.
I've gone back and forth on that quite a bit. Guards red, shark blue, gt silver, racing yellow, chalk .... They all look nice.

Shark blue and chalk are 2k extra tho. Guards red and racing yellow 650 less.

I kinda want to blend in tho and not look tuner....

More than a bit jealous... my wife had a Cheyenne on that color combo. Absolutely gorgeous.

A great car, I like the combo! I would just change to the light green... gives a bit more happiness to the car. But a nice chassi, great motor, manual box... it's a car to keep on the garage for years.

Aventurine green is the light green....I think... Configurator just shows a little darker

What a beautiful colour combination!

I bet it goes like the proverbial. When do you take delivery? :D

May 20 is current estimate. Freeze date Mar 4. But timing can change and since I'm now daily driving my spider I'm not in too much of a rush...

On a completely different subject - and apologies in advance for a brief thread hijack, but, how do you find the 124 with the GT1446+ compared with stock. Worth it? 😅

I love it. Love it love it. That and the system one make this ride so sweet. Have debated often whether I'll buy the boxster and prefer the spider. But I think they are just different. Small go kart vs speed and comfort and extreme handling. So current plan has me keeping both. Bye bye wrangler.

I do not regret the 1446+ upgrade and phase 3. Haven't had much opportunity to drive others upgrades or a tork car but couldn't be happier at the improvement from stock. Hard to separate right now 1446+ and ph 3, system one, and learning to drive it in manual always over 3k. The 3 together make for a brilliant driving experience

Would you put all in for something more provoking!!!

I like that python green a lot. But for the same money I think the shark blue has just as much wow with better staying power

Many people say that you get tired of strong colors... but when i look to classic cars, a different vivid color makes the car much more appealing!
Lose your time watching movies and get what you like ;)

That's great! Thanks for the feedback.

I agree. I feel that next year a V8 is on the cards, but I honestly couldn't pick a car that could easily replace this, certainly for bang for buck, in the UK, at the very least.

Again, brilliant colour choice.

Very nice. Had a 1st gen 996 in Forest Green/Tan and loved it. Kinda wish I still had it to go with my Spider...but only so many fit in my garage.

Really nice color. Have a question. Are there cup holders in it? I know, first world problems and all that. Depending on your use, probably not a big deal.
